Output Settings

Output Settings

Configure output control settings to control whether the Data Processor transformation creates event logs and saves output documents.
You can control the types of messages that the Data Processor transformation writes to the design-time event log. If you save the parsed input documents with the event logs, you can view the context where the error occurred in the
Event
view.
The following table describes the settings in the
Design-Time Events
area:
Setting
Description
Log design-time events
Determines whether to create a design-time event log. By default, the Data Processor transformation logs notifications, warnings, and failures in the design-time event log. You can exclude the following event types:
  • Notifications
  • Warnings
  • Failures
Save parsed documents
Determines when the Data Processor transformation saves a parsed input document. You can select the following options:
  • Always.
  • Never
  • On failure
The default is always.
The following table describes the settings in the
Run-Time Events
area:
Setting
Description
Log run-time events
Determines whether an event log is created when you run the transformation from a mapping.
  • Never.
  • On failure
The default is Never.
The following table describes the settings in the
Output
area:
Setting
Description
Disable automatic output
Determines whether the Data Processor transformation writes the output to the standard output file. Disable standard output in the following situations:
  • You pass the output of a Parser to the input of another component before the transformation creates an output file.
  • You use a
    WriteValue
    action to write data directly to the output from a Script instead of passing data through the output ports.
Disable value compression
Determines whether the Data Processor transformation uses value compression to optimize memory use.
Important: Do not disable value compression except when Informatica Global Customer Support advises you to disable it.
The following table describes the settings in the
Binary output port collection mode
area. You can select one of these options for binary output for a relational to hierarchical transformation with XML, Avro, or Parquet output, or for a Data Processor transformation Parser with Avro or Parquet output.
Setting
Description
Collect input rows to a single output
Determines whether the Data Processor transformation accumulates the relational input to a single binary output port.
Split output when size exceeds
Determines whether the Data Processor transformation divides the output into chunks based on a maximum stated output size.
Output row for each row (do not collect)
Determines whether the Data Processor transformation passes the output in separate rows.
